  • The Trenches of Sleep Deprivation – A Letter to a Fellow Mum

    When pregnant with my first son I remember being terrified of the sleep deprivation that was to come. I knew it would be hard and I also knew that ...
  • My Real Postpartum Body


    I am a mother. I am tired, broken and sore. I have lumps, bumps, marks and jiggly bits.

    I am a mother. I have created, grown, carried and birthed two gorgeous sons.

    I am a mother. I am solely responsible for the lives of two little humans, every single day and night, week in and week out and will be for the rest of my life (and maybe future #number 3 baby).

    I am a health professional. I work in an...

    The birth of our second son was quite different to that of our first – which was a fairly text book natural birth.  Most of you will have read my earlier blogs about the challenges I encountered during the later stages of my pregnancy with pelvic athropathy which meant I needed to be induced. It was a very surreal...
  • Super Simple Banana Muffins

    We were out of our supply of snacks so this morning I whipped up these super simple banana muffins. When I say this morning it was more like crack of dawn as Arjun was awake at 5.30am this morning - so what better activity on a cold, dark morning than to do some baking together.
